Step 1: Intake Materials
As a follow up to an initial telephone inquiry, the Admissions Office will request the prospective applicant’s records, such as: academic (Current IEP), vocational assessment, social emotional development and psychological evaluation. After reviewing the intake records, a tour and interview date will be established. We generally require the applicant and parent(s) participate in a tour, so the applicant may make an informed decision when considering our program.
Step 2: Tour and Interview
Prospective students will join their family members on an interview and tour of our campus. This provides the prospective student with more information about the ASAT program, students, and staff. It also serves as an informal interview that provides admissions staff with more information about the prospective student’s strengths and needs. At the conclusion of the tour and interview, an invitation may be extended to participate in a sample day of classes.
Step 3: Sample Day
Prospective students spend the day as a typical ASAT student. They attend ASAT classes, have lunch with a current ASAT student and staff, and complete an interview with ASAT staff. Students receive one-on-one and small group supports during the visit, and are assessed across the classroom and community settings. Following the interview, the student and family will be notified of admission to the program.
Step 4: Acceptance
The Admissions Office will notify prospective students and their families when the candidate is accepted for admission, typically within a week of the sample day. A confirmation letter of admission will be sent, which includes a 30-day notice for the advanced deposit payment necessary in order to reserve space in the program. Acceptance is based on July admission; however, when a student slot is available during the year, a student may be admitted at an agreed upon time and based on apartment availability.
